Max, bad news, the patterns won't sand out. The condition you ran into is called "tiger stripping", don't feel bad its happened to everyone first time spraying mettalic. Because the paint has metal flake in it the flake will rest at the pattern you apply it in, wet sanding will only desterb the metal flake and make it worse. Tiger striping as usually caused by your spraying technique/pattern. Sraying metalics isn't easy, its only two competiters in difficulty is pearls and the new kamelion paint(to me). When spraying mettalics technique is the key, different painters have different ones, I find laying a thick coat overlapping the spray pattern about 1/4 usually then a full thin uniform coat usually solves the problem, but that is only me. Practice, you'll find your way. Hope you get it worked out.

I need to learn to proofread :(

Well he may think its easy, but I think its a pain in the ars, given; I've only sprayed it twice and may not have learned how or gotten used to it, but it was a pain in the ars for me. Wouldn't be the first time I can't do something others think is simple. <img src="graemlins/drunk.gif" border="0" alt="[drunk]" />
